Sunday night I attended (for the second time in a year) Wicked! I simply love this musical. As I sat watching Elphaba defy gravity with my hands clasped and my feet firmly on the floor, my mother-in-law leans over and asks me if I was cold. “No”, I replied, “I’m just excited”.
It’s not lost on me that the performers play these characters on a nightly basis, but how incredible that they do it over and over again, perfecting their craft to the point that they can elevate my experience and captivate me for the entire show. I’m humbled thinking that I can sometimes get tired after making 10 phone calls a day, or cutting and pasting my article x number of times, or can’t find the time to make a quick video.
What kind of excuse would a performer have to not show up on the day of show? For all their preparation and commitment is for the show… it’s in performing that the money is made.
Building any kind of business takes having a performance schedule. It takes knowing when you’re going to be performing the money making activities and then doing it on a regular basis.
“I’m through accepting limits
‘Cuz someone says they’re so
Some things I cannot change
But ’till I try, I’ll never know”
